What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is able to effectively align your teeth with a set of virtually invisible aligners. The clear plastic aligners gently realign your teeth into their desired position over time. Invisalign should only be taken out to eat, drink and brush. If you are drinking water they are fine to stay in.

Invisalign Treatment Process
You will first come in for your FREE orthodontic or Invisalign consultation. You will be able to discuss your goals with our dentist and from there we will see if you are a candidate for Invisalign. If you are a candidate and would like to proceed we will then move forward with x-rays and set out an individualized treatment plan.
Using your treatment plan we will discuss how long it should take for your teeth to shift into proper alignment. The amount of trays each patient receives and duration of treatment is completely dependent on the issue at hand. For each set of clear aligners you will wear them for two weeks at 22 hours a day before moving onto the next set.
You will visit our dental office every six weeks to make sure everything is moving into alignment properly.
